I draw on my law firm training and my years as in-house counsel, to give my clients the services they need when they need it, with a deep understanding of the fields of digital media, advertising, internet services and technology, representing both content owners and publishers.
I act as in-house counsel for an emerging or smaller business, working closely with the executives to help formulate company strategy and fulfill day-to-day legal needs.
Over the last four years for the StumbleUpon web and mobile discovery service, I served as sole company counsel, with one day a week in the office and additional remote hours. My work includes: negotiating and drafting technology licenses and service agreements, standardization and review of all sales forms and agreements, product review, advertising and marketing legal oversight, supervision of outside law firms, and providing general business and strategic legal advice to management.
For three years at the Big Frame multi-channel network, I acted as internal counsel creating models for exclusive talent agreements, production contracts, terms of service & management deals, helping to take the business to the next level & its acquisition by AwesomenessTV.
I supplement an existing in-house legal team, where their legal needs over all or in a particular area exceed their internal resources.
At Roku, I initially worked with the sales team on insertion orders, advertising policies & data management agreements, shifting later to support the content acquisition team, negotiating development and distribution agreements for the Roku OTT platform.
I provide project-based representation, working in a specific area requiring focused legal attention.
I helped SoundHound pivot from a consumer-facing music recognition mobile app to a voice-enabling API for app developers, where I negotiated agreements with each of the data providers.
For Game Rant I concluded a strategic advertising partnership and several ad network agreements.
I support my client’s needs with creative models of representation and custom fee structures that work within your legal budget.
Based in Beverly Hills, I often work at clients’ offices in Los Angeles and San Francisco, and support other clients remotely. I look forward to working with you!
